Tip 42: Reading Nutritional Information Tables on foods

Weight loss tip posted by: Admin

When comparing foods you need to take into consideration sugar, salt (sodium), fat, and fibre. We need to eat more fibre and less sugar, fat, and salt. Nutritional tables always list the ingredients per 100g as well as per serve. Always compare the ‘per 100g’ figures. We have listed examples of high and low amounts.

The following are large amounts per 100 g:

  • 30g of sugars
  • 20g of fat
  • 3g of fibre
  • 600 mg of sodium

The following are small amounts per 100 g:

  • 5g of sugars
  • 3g of fat
  • 0.5g of fibre
  • 120mg sodium
